A Super Bowl history of Tom Brady and the Patriots dynasty
Even if you’re not a fan of the New England Patriots or the Los Angeles Rams, you can probably find a reason to watch the Super Bowl, whether it’s to find out if CBS color commentator Tony Romo is really clairvoyant or just to watch the commercials.
If you would prefer to do that with a crowd, there are two things you can do: Invite a bunch of people over to your house, which means you’ll have a lot of cleaning to do afterward, or go to a bar/restaurant/club that’s throwing a Super Bowl party. Here are some options.
